Flame Retardant Plywood

Intended to be used wherever fire protection is the first priority (e.g interior finishes for public buildings, boat & yacht building, the automotive industry, exhibition stands, etc), our flame retardant plywood panels are classified in accordance with BS EN 13501 Euroclasses B & C.

To meet the European classifications, the rate of fire growth, total heat release, smoke production and burning droplets are measured by testing samples of the products to EN 13823 (The SBI test) and EN 11925-2 (The SFI test) and, for wood-based panels, classified as Euroclass B or C in accordance with BS EN13501-1. Euroclass B is higher technical class than Euroclass C and, therefore by definition, if material conforms to Euroclass B then it will exceed the requirements for Euroclass C. The fire performance commonly required in high risk areas such as external cladding within 1m of a boundary, escape routes and staircases is Euroclass B.

Please note that customers and specifiers must satisfy themselves that the flame retardant products they choose are fit for their required applications.
 
All FR treated panels may require sanding prior to further production such as bonding, laminating or painting. The flame retardant process is water based and, although all processed panels are kiln-dried after treatment, it is inevitable that traces of flame retardant chemicals will remain on the panel surface and must be removed prior to further production.
 

Factory Production Control & Declarations of Performance

 
The law governing the distribution of Flame Retardant (FR) panels into construction changed in 2013. Distributors placing FR panels on the market must hold a valid Factory Production Control (FPC) certificate, issued by a notified Body*. Distributors who attempt to place FR panels on the market without a valid FPC certificate are breaking the law. 
 
Meyer have held a valid FPC certificate since 2004, one of very few distributors to do so. Consequently, we can offer Meyer’s declarations of Performance and CE Mark for all wood panels processed to Euroclasses B & C, in accordance with EN13986. This is your guarantee that the FR panels you buy from us are fit for purpose and will ultimately perform to the specification claimed.
 
Always ask about the manufacturer’s Factory Production Control certificate and ask for the appropriate Declaration of Performance (DOP) when you buy. * A notified Body is an organisation, such as Warrington Certification accredited by the UK Accreditation Service for the purpose of product testing and auditing and whose competence has been ‘notified’ to the European Commission.
